Default My Foot Is In the Door!

After thinking I was edged out in the hiring, I had an interview this morning with Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division and now have a tentative start date of October 1st as Animal Welfare Officer 1. While I won't be starting out on the streets, the way I see it, my foot's definitely in the door.

All I'm waiting for is clearance of my background check (no problems there), then I do a drug screen and physical. Hopefully personnel puts the hammer down and gets this moving.

Very good. Just FYI, most cities start their physical year on 10-01, and they freeze hiring, purchases and everything else in the last half of September, so donít get too uptight if you donít hear anything before then.

Thank you, guys...

Well, personnel just called to inform me I passed my background check (must have been a simple OBSI criminal history check to start with) and I'm scheduled for a physical and drug screen for 1430hrs tomorrow.

Turns out someone did drop out and made room for me. This is such a huge relief for me and my wife since I've been out of work for over 8 months and we've been relying on her income.
